Structural Engineering - Proudly serving Alberta

UrbanVillageApartment Building2

This residential building consists of 30 units on 5 levels including lofts, 3 half levels of underground parking as well as soil retainment around the site. Construction includes concrete foundations and parking structure with timber framing above the main floor slab.


• Building height demanded deep soil cover over perimeter of main floor slab creating significant stepped and reinforced concrete design challenges.
• Survey errors that came to light after completion of concrete casting required last minute structural modifications to accommodate an 8” shift of the building over the parkade. Heninger Structural Engineering acted quickly and efficiently resulting in only minor extra costs and no delay.
